We went 5 years ago and it looks as though nothing has changed! The hotel is terrible...old rooms, with broken AC's and the bathrooms were gross, musty and moldy! the pool area was and is still falling apart and the beach is not beautiful! GO SOMEWHERE ELSE in the DR...or at least another resort in this area. This hotel should... More

From the web page,this hotel promotes itself as a four star. In myopinion it is at best 2/3 star. If you are going to their appartments, my advice is dont. You would expect these appartments to be four star, but they are officially 3 keys.They need cleaning and painting with fridges, (mine at least) would not put anything in. The... More

The hotel is nice. The food was very good (i'm hard to please but was not short of a wide array of fine cuisine to enjoy - every day - morning, noon and night). The staff were genuinely very helpful (only one ever gave me mild trouble) & safety??? Don't worry. I found undercover police at the resort. Warning -... More

We booked this hotel as a last minute holiday via a holiday booking agent over the phone, we were sold a beautiful 4* hotel which is definitely NOT what we got. Turning up to the hotel in the evening it was dark and I could tell straight away this was not a beautiful 4* resort. We were given a room... More

I stayed at the Playa Real Resort in Juan Dolio, DR in August 2005. The rooms were decent enough, nothing luxurious, but they were very clean. The food at the outdoor buffet was very good, I must admit. They had an excellent array of international foods to satisfy every guest's tastes. The pools were kept relatively clean, and in the...
